FROM ANAPHORA LITERARY PRESSWelcome to Saint Angel is the story of a rural community’s battle to stop unscrupulous developers and drought deniers from turning their beloved high-desert home into a suburban nightmare and depleting their precious water supply to water lawns and fill swimming pools during California’s worst drought. It’s a dead-serious comedy about zany underdogs determined to protect their Arcadia from bulldozers and climate change deniers. Part environmental fiction, part social satire, it speaks to exurban sprawl and the heedless development of fragile natural areas.
||“The sheer scope of the author’s imagination, and the almost impossibly delicate poetic weight of his prose, has made the discovery of William Luvaas’s writing one of the genuine joys of my reading-year. He is a remarkable writer, comfortably among the finest at work in America today.”
– Billy O’Callaghan, Irish Book Award-winning author of The Things We Lose, The Things We Leave Behind
Author William Luvaas
